    I'm trying to add custom fields to our pages by running the code supplied here:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-4-x/general-discussions/can-tags-and-categories-be-applied-to-a-page.aspx#1580529

    I'm getting the following error when running the code provided in the above example:

    Specified type 'Telerik.Sitefinity.Pages.Model.PageData' is not a dynamic type.

    [InvalidOperationException: Specified type 'Telerik.Sitefinity.Pages.Model.PageData' is not a dynamic type.]
       Telerik.Sitefinity.Fluent.DynamicData.DynamicTypeFacade.LoadDynamicType(Type existingType) +734
       Telerik.Sitefinity.Fluent.DynamicData.DynamicTypeFacade..ctor(AppSettings appSettings, Type existingType) +40
       Telerik.Sitefinity.Fluent.FluentDynamicData.Type(Type existingType) +30
       SitefinityWebApp.Widgets.PageList.PageList.Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) in C:\Projects\CMS_Playground\Sitefinity_Sandbox\Sandbox.FloridaJobs\Widgets\PageList\PageList.ascx.cs:28
       System.Web.Util.CalliHelper.EventArgFunctionCaller(IntPtr fp, Object o, Object t, EventArgs e) +14
       System.Web.Util.CalliEventHandlerDelegateProxy.Callback(Object sender, EventArgs e) +35
       System.Web.UI.Control.OnLoad(EventArgs e) +91

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Hello Antoine,

    It looks like the PageData is not created as a dynamic meta type

    var metaManager = Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.Metadata.MetadataManager.GetManager();
     
    var type = metaManager.CreateMetaType(typeof(Telerik.Sitefinity.Pages.Model.PageData));
     
    metaManager.SaveChanges();

    Thanks Ivan! I'm taking over this issue for Antoine. I was able to successfully add the field after running the code above. Now, I'm trying to set the value using the code provided here:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/devnet/forums/sitefinity-4-x/sdk/custom-page-attributes.aspx#1479797

    App.WorkWith().DynamicData().Type(typeof(PageData)).Field().TryCreateNew("MyPageDataField", typeof(string)).SaveChanges(true);
    var dynamicContent = App.WorkWith().DynamicData().Fields().Where(dc => dc.FieldName == "MyPageDataField").Get();
    var pg = App.WorkWith().Pages().Where(pk => pk.Name == "somename").Get().SingleOrDefault() as PageNode;
    pg.Page.SetValue("MyPageDataField", "somevalue");

    However, there's no SetValue() method on the PageData class. Has this changed in a recent release?

    Thanks much!
    Clay

    Hello Antoine,

    Do you have a reference to  Telerik.Sitefinity.Model; (using Telerik.Sitefinity.Model;)
